The global Food Allergen Testing market size is expected to reach close to $363.63 million by 2029 with an annualized growth rate of 8.15 % through the projected period.
The global food allergen testing market was valued at USD 649.3 Million in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period. Factors driving the growth of the food allergen testing market include growth in numbers of allergic conditions among customers, rise in food recall for undeclared allergen products and increased cognizance among patrons about the safety of food products.
Every year millions of customers can have an antagonistic allergic response to foods. Food allergies can be mild or severe; in a number of cases, contact can source tremendously serious reactions and even demise. Since there is no everlasting treatment for food allergies, evasion and primary treatment of indications are the lone management approaches offered to affected beings. To hand are above 160 diverse types of food identified to activate an allergic reaction in individuals with food allergies. The response triggering Food Allergens are select, species-specific proteins existing in certain foods. Inappropriate label declaration of the existence of food allergens is a principal cause of product recalls and adds to several occasions of customer allergen experience.
Regionally, North America accounted for the largest market share of the global food allergen testing market attributable to vast number of patients and global trade of feed materials. Leading players of the global food allergen testing market include General Mills, Eurofins Scientific, Neogen, Nutrition Point, ALS Limited, SGS S.A., Intertek Group, Alpro UK, Pamelas Goods, Amys Kitchen among others.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) :
In several countries the law necessitates that allergens existent in food be labelled to decrease the hazard of accidental ingesting. Furthermore, the risk of cross-contamination must be deliberated and safety measure positioned in place to reduce the probability. Allergen controlling requires unified methods and effective message of allergen information all through the supply chain. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) undertake the development and execution of a prevention plan, so that the existence of serious allergens in the ultimate product is prohibited. Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plans aim to ascertain the critical points in a produce’s manufacture where supplementary measures can be reserved to minimise the occurrence of allergens in the absolute product. In the incident that HACCP and GMP practices recommend that the implementation of those added measures might not be sufficient to eliminate the peril of cross contamination, then applicable labelling must be presented.
On the basis of technology, the market is segmented into biosensors-based, immunoassay-based, PCR, and other technologies.
Immunoassay-based methods are established specifically to decide the existence of allergens. Every assay targets a definite allergenic protein or class of proteins, with restricted cross-reactivity. For instance, an ELISA that aims the milk protein, Casein (milk solids), will not identify a different milk allergen, for example Beta-lacto-globulin (whey protein). Moreover, when target proteins (such as egg or gluten) are denatured owed to heat action (baking, frying, or pasteurization) or fermentation, ELISA -based techniques may not identify them correctly, so it is essential to choose kits that are suitable for the matrix at hand. Similarly, certain sample sorts might give false negative outcomes with ELISA -based procedures. In such circumstances, DNA-based systems may be applicable. Lastly, ELISA methods do not occur for some allergenic proteins, but PCR can deliver a substitute, source-specific exposure method in these conditions.
North America accounted for the largest share of the global food allergen testing market in 2020. Moreover, Asia is likely to show lucrative growth during the forecast period.
Food allergies make customers’ lives challenging and are possibly fatal. In the USA, it was projected that food allergies are accountable for 30,000 emergency room stopovers every year. In a global survey, led by the World Allergen Organisation, the British Society for Allergy and Immunology stated the incidence of allergic disease in the common populace had stayed constant over the former 10 years whereas 25% of both the grownup and juvenile populations undergo from one or the other allergic diseases. The bulk of nations responding to the similar survey conveyed an upsurge in food allergies. No country stated a drop in food allergies over the preceding 10 years. To safeguard consumers, several countries have recognized a variety of foods and additives and employed legislation on their use and labelling to surge customer awareness and decrease risk.
